Members of the Christian community staged a protest against actor Raveena Tandon, director-Choreographer Farah Khan and comedian Bharti Singh in Jammu on Sunday for allegedly hurting their religious sentiment during a recent TV show.

The protesters assembled at Shaheedi Chowk in the city and raised slogans to express their anguish against the Bollywood personalities for their alleged blasphemous act, officials said. They objected to the usage of the word 'Hallelujah' on Khan's web-series Backbenchers, where Tandon had made an appearance.

On the show, Khan had asked Singh to spell the word. While Tandon spelled it correctly, Singh was unable to. She further described it as a vulgar term.

A second FIR has been registered within a week in Punjab against the trio for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments. The celebrities have also been booked in Beed city of Maharashtra in connection with the show aired on Christmas eve.

Khan and Tandon had tweeted clarifications, following the objections and complaints.
